Lucky G and the Melancholy Quokka
Even the happiest creature on Earth can get the sads!
Lucky G makes a trip down under to help out a struggling quokka. Join them on their journey to better mental health.
Review from a world renowned play therapist:
“This book grabs you from the outset and takes you on a hopeful journey: A colorful, spunky raven (with a Ph.D) travels to Australia to meet a quokka who has lost his true smile, finds it hard to move, and isn’t hanging out with friends anymore. Dr. G knows that depression is the culprit, and extends a listening ear and helping hand, all the while reassuring quokka that lots of adults and kids can feel depression too!
The illustrations are colorful and whimsical, and the fact that Amy takes us on a journey to Australia provides the novelty that keeps the book captivating and moving right along.
I truly enjoyed reading this and I believe children with depression, and their parents, will find acknowledgment, guidance, and hope in this little book. Enjoyable, informative, and capable of capturing a child’s imagination.”
